The Slow Strangling of the American Ideal

“The percentage of Americans owning homes - the modern equivalent of the founding ideal of land-owning an empowered citizens is again declining.  The average net worth of Americans at retirement is also plunging.  About 40 percent of American adults can only make minimum payments on their mounting credit-card debt.  Such stagnation occurs at a moment the federal government is is borrowing trillions of dollars for the greatest array of redistributive entitlements in history.

All these statistics have consequences for the nation as a whole.  The ages at which Americans marry, have their first child, or buy a home have risen to new highs.  American fertility rates reach new modern lows.  The native-born population of the United States shrinks and ages.  In circular fashion, once middle-class viability erodes, an ever-expanding government is asked to subsidize Americans in vain attempts to provide some of the entitlements that citizens once confidently earned themselves.

The result is the very government-induced dependency about which the nineteenth century Americanophile Alexis de Tocqueville once warned: an ennui of prolonged adolescence replacing the pride and dynamism of the self-reliant citizen.”

The Party of Science Continues It's Mockery of Science

One of the biggest lies of the present decade is that the democrats are the "Party of Science." It fits quite nicely with their soviet style mantra of 'only they know what passes as truth'.  And now they propose to set some of their Legalistic Utopia and Alternative Reality in stone.

According to Breitbart, President 46* released a statement Friday urging Congress to “swiftly pass” H.R.5.- The Equality Act, a bill that would eliminate the legal recognition of male and female sex, cater to gender ideology, and designate protection for the unborn as “pregnancy” discrimination. This legislation, which would rewrite civil rights law to include “sexual orientation and gender identity” as protected classes, not to mention mock biological science, and would likely upend the national culture as Americans have known it.

Ryan Anderson Ph.D., president of Ethics & Public Policy Center (EPPC) an expert on bioethics, religious liberty, and political philosophy released a statement on this Equality sham. In part:
“The so-called Equality Act is legislative malpractice that turns equality on its head. It isn’t drafted as a shield to protect vulnerable minorities from unjust discrimination, but as a sword to persecute those who do not embrace new sexual and gender ideologies.”
Anderson underscored the impact the legislation will have on the privacy of women and girls, as well as the punitive consequences to which faith-based institutions and organizations will be exposed at its hands.  Anderson noted that any questioning of transgender medical treatments and surgeries would be labeled “discrimination” if the Equality Act becomes law.
“And any refusal to support or provide abortions would now be treated as ‘pregnancy’ discrimination,” he continued. “And no one—not even the act’s sponsors—can tell us what would be required under the act to avoid committing ‘discrimination’ in the case of ‘non-binary’ gender identities.”
The problem is that the Equality Act wouldn’t protect people in need of protection as much as it would fundamentally change civil rights law for the worse.

The Cancerous Left's Racial Bigotry and Fake Righteous Indignation Marches On

Just Days after the San Francisco Unified School District board (SFUSD) moved to rename 44 schools, including those named after Presidents George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Thomas Jefferson, because their namesakes were "inappropriate",  the School District's art program decided to drop its former name, "VAPA," because.............."acronyms are a symptom of white supremacy culture." I shit you not.

As reported in the WFB, according to district art department director Sam Bass, the acronym, which stood for "visual and performing arts," could "alienate" non-native English speakers. Alienate???

The decision to change the art department's name was one of a handful of so called feel good antiracist measures the district voted to implement. The art department is working to prioritize "antiracist arts instruction." San Francisco school board president Gabriela López said the board is "committed" to dismantling "symbols of racism and White supremacy culture."

I spent most of my morning coffee time trying to rationalize this decision by the SFUSD to no avail. With two degrees in Music and having spent many hour in "visual and performing arts' departments in various schools of higher learning with students from around the world, I'm puzzled by how art of any kind, much less an acronym for a art curriculum could be offensive. My only conclusion is that this is nothing more but than continuing minority leftist anti-white bigotry parading as cultural enrichment. More bluntly, a cancerous pustule on America.
